What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]

This collection is an index to the 1894 edition of Slater's Royal National Directory Of Ireland. The first directory published by Isaac Slater (1803-1883) was in 1846 with the title I. Slater's National Commercial Directory of Ireland. Slater, along with James Pigot, was a prolific publisher of regional directories. After Pigot's death in 1843, Slater included his partner's name in the title for many years. In 1892, the firm of Kelly & Co., acquired the majority interest and continued publication of the directories.

The title of the directory varied over the years:

  • 1846 - I. Slater's National Commercial Directory of Ireland
  • 1870 - Slater's (late Pigot & Co's) Royal National Commercial Directory of Ireland
  • 1881 - Slater's Royal National Commercial Directory Of Ireland
  • 1905 - Kelly's Directory of Ireland, with which is incorporated Slater's Royal National Directory of Ireland
